The 2020-2021 Regional Refugee Response Plan (RRRP) for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) validates the earlier RRRP, launched in December 2018 and revised in June 2019, covering the inter-agency response in the countries of asylum for Congolese refugees neighbouring the DRC: Angola, Burundi, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. By the end of 2020, RRRP partners aim to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance and protection to 912,069 Congolese refugees. The planning figures are based on scenarios reflecting a deteriorating situation within the DRC characterized by ongoing conflict in the east and other parts of the country targeting civilians, where serious and frequent violations of human rights continue to be perpetrated by various actors notably in North, South Kivu and Iturbi. 1 Interventions will also be provided for 1,393,433 people in the host communities also affected by the refugee crisis. This will ensure access for all to better quality services, promote development and strengthen social cohesion among the refugee and host communities.
